    My younger brother is an ISTP. He plays soccer and video games a lot. He also reads a lot those fantasy type books, like Harry Potter and Narnia and what-not (as a joke I just call anything like that "dragon books.") He doesn't "make" conversation, he talks when he wants to, and it's always about stuff he's interested in, a bit less talkative than I am. Seeing my brother not talk around people is just hilarious. He's pretty smart, motivated too. Most of my siblings/cousins are Sensors, which I actually appreciate.

    My wife "Lookin4theBestNU" says I should change "waste his time" to "invest his time". I'm not sure why though.

    your wife is tactful, that's why lol tell her thanks.

    What a perfectly good way to ruin a topic, with serious, educated, introspective crap
    I guess we found that sterotypical ISTP.

    1 - Whenever you take the Myers Briggs test, you come out as an ISTP.
    2 - When reading descriptions of the sixteen types, the one titled ISTP is the one you relate to most.
    3 - You haven't yet realised that a crawlspace isn't the best long term option for dumping bodies.
    4 - You hate me for even daring to post on an ISTP thread and are plotting the best way to kill me.
    5 - You're thinking about sex right.................now.
    6 - You're the one that set fire to that school that was on the news.
    7 - You're thinking about sex again.
    8 - Sex
    9 - Sex
    10 - The sex one again.
    Why do we always come here?

    I guess we'll never know.

    It's like a kind of torture,
    To have to watch this show.

    It's not true!! Honest it's not true!!!

    It seems so... illogical when put in black and white and yet makes so much sense when it happens..

    Oh and it appears I'm quite the ISTP... either that or INTP and ISTP are damn close!
    Isn't it time for a colourful metaphor?

    My brother's an ISTP, and I will answer for him the following:
    1. Every time you see Briggs Myers you think of Briggs & Stratton.

    He doesn't know who Briggs Meyers is.

    2. You own a tool for every occasion.

    My brother insists that he doesn't care about mechanical parts and stuff, but hell, he loves his little green screwdriver a lot.

    3. When you were young you wanted to be a: master thief, assassin, ninja, pilot, race car driver, etc.

    Yup, yup and yup.

    4. You are actually happy when your computer breaks because you get to fix it.

    My brother works as a computer technician. He's 13.

    5. Contrary to# 4, you get tired of your friend, aunt, uncle. etc. asking you to fix their computer, TV, etc. for the millionth time.

    Yeah. My mom and I always ask him to fix the internet for us when it stops working, and he swears at us (me).

    6. Although to strangers you appear to be a risk taker, you know that everything is under control.

    When asked whether he wants to live in the city or the suburbs, he picks the suburbs.

    7. Get extremely annoyed when unwelcome people invade your space.

    Actually, I go into his room all the time to grab his headphones, and he doesn't care. But he's extremely messy.

    8. Anger is fleeting. You occasionally get very angry but it quickly dissipates.

    That's true.

    9. You do what you want, when you want, how you want, but would never infringe on another person ability to do the same.

    Also true, in my brother's case.

    10. Although you aren't always a nice person, you are a good person.

    My brother wants me to hug in 24/7, he may be on the verge of mental retardation.

    This girl talks to people she likes and doesn't talk to people she doesn't like :P She also has a case of the haters. Big surprise.

    No joke, I feel like some people just don't like me and I don't usually know why.

    I make eye contact with people I like when I talk to them. That's usually a big indicator. I don't look at the people I don't like... Maybe it's weird, but that's how I roll :P

    thanks for the reply, it offered a lot of insight. though, how do you act differently from when interacting with someone you like as a friend to how you act with someone you like as more than a friend have a romantic interest in?

    one sure fire way is that i am the only one who isn't threatened by you,
    and admires your not-so-overt warmth, and tells you about it
    then you want to rip my head off for noticing,
    but then begin to cry
    and we get married atop the island you built out of secret sentiments
